SUPPORT SERvICES SUPPORTING SERVICES SUPPLY CAPABILITIES


With such a varied industrial landscape on their doorstep, the Group has valuable experience in supplying the oil & gas, marine, renewable energy, engineering and machine shop sectors, just to name a few. Whilst the different industries demand the same level of quality and service, their requirements differ not only with each sector, but with each individual client.


To complement the vast choice of products available, the Group has developed a range of value-added services. This includes in- house workwear personalisation facilities for embroidery, heat-seals, badging and alterations plus industrial-scale laundry services, consignment stock management systems (SupeRun), calibration services for tooling and an Air Liquide gas supply service.


The Group also invests in the local economy, supporting young people through an extensive apprenticeship scheme with an East of England based college for which they gained recognition at the CCN Apprenticeship Awards 2015. OAASIS was awarded small to medium Employer of the Year, nominated by the City College Norwich tutor of their apprentices. The apprenticeship scheme not only gives individuals a chance to gain experience in an important and thriving industry, but also brings fresh insight, skills and expertise into OAASIS, which in turn allows the Group and its employees to grow and improve.


UNDERSTANDING CLIENT NEEDS Many years of experience working alongside global energy giants means OAASIS knows how important it is to understand the needs of clients in demanding offshore and industrial sectors. Lee Sparkes is one of the company’s wind energy equipment supply experts and works with many of the Group’s renewable energy clients.


“As distributors of industrial safety equipment, consumables and tooling, it’s vital that we provide the right products for the clients,” says Mr Sparkes. He adds, “Our expertise in the offshore industry gives us insight into the level of quality needed for products used in the tough conditions on offshore wind farms. Now that the standards of safety equipment have settled in this sector, we can ensure that we find the right equipment and supply it in reliable, cost-effective solutions.”


The Group provides tailor-made solutions for the supply of PPE and MRO equipment, reliably distributing from an extensive warehouse facility with in excess of 25,000 product lines in stock and thousands of additional products available to order on short lead times.


ACQUISITION


In addition to the Group’s own capabilities, the recent acquisition by DistributionNOW has opened up a network of over 300 locations across the globe. The network is supported by a central ERP system, used across the DistributionNOW family worldwide to give access to a catalogue of 300,000+ individual product SKUs and shared product information in addition to a wealth of industry expertise.


As part of DistributionNOW, OAASIS can also offer increasingly popular PPE and MRO vending machine solutions (both small- and large-scale) plus dedicated export services through Wilson Export, a segment of DistributionNOW.


CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT Having been awarded three internationally recognised standard certifications (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001), OAASIS is focused on health and safety, quality and continuous improvement throughout the company and in line with their corporate social responsibility policy, offer training opportunities to employees at every level to improve skills and expertise internally.


COMMITMENT


Mr Sparkes concluded, “The latest contracts for OAASIS shows our commitment to high quality supply and we look forward to supporting more wind farm operators and their extended supply chains in Round 2 and 3 projects in the UK and Europe.”
